I have been thinking about giving camping a try this summer. The problem is I don't know the first thing about it. I tried camping for one night several years ago in a one man tent and was totally and completely miserable. I would like to know from all you camping types Where do you camp? National parks, private campgrounds or farmer's pasture? What type of gear do you prefer? What type of tent, sleeping bag and pad? Do you carry cooking gear and food? My desire is to spend less to have more time on the road. Is it possible to spend less with camping?
